High-speed crash at Carlsruhe

A Woodend man had to be cut from his vehicle following a high-speed crash at Carlsruhe on Saturday.
Emergency services were called to the scene on Cobb and Co Road about 4pm, after the driver lost control of his vehicle and crossed to the wrong side of the road, rolling several times and landing in an embankment.
The man, aged in his 30s, was freed by members of Woodend SES with assistance from Woodend and Carlsruhe Fire Brigades.
The driver was conscious and alert but suffered a head injury and cuts and abrasions to his upper body and was taken by ambulance to Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
The road was closed for about two hours.
Police are investigating speed and alcohol as possible contributing factors.
Leading Senior Constable Peter Wall of the Macedon Ranges Highway Patrol warned drivers that police would be increasing their presence on the roads coming into the holiday season.
“Police will be conducting major traffic operations and will be out in force, enforcing the road rules,” LSC Wall said.
